A blustery day
Today was blustery and cold on the water. My hands were tingling from the cold and wet. I took a hot shower as soon as we got back to clear off the mud and damp. We got all the sampling done for today. Yesterday, we lost the dredge which was a bummer. We dragged for it for about 2 hours to no avail.
I think that I'm going to go home to spend the night tonight and come back early in the morning. I miss my home and the critters. Most of all I miss being with my loved one. I'm entirely too used to reaching over in the night and hugging on her. Sleeping in a single bed at the field station just doesn't cut it. So what if I have to get up at o'dark thirty? It won't matter because I'll be sleeping in my own bed spooning with a warm lovely body. I think that's worth the drive.
